The notice was published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2007 (72 FR 56385). At the request of petitioners, a company official and a state agency representative, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers were engaged in the production of metal stamping dies. New information provided by the company shows that the worker group includes those employees of Synergis Technologies Group Corporation divisions known as Dielink International and Dievelopment. These two divisions are located at different street addresses in Grand Rapids, but are engaged in employment related to the production of metal stamping dies. Furthermore, the Unemployment Insurance (UI) wage account for these divisions is reported under Synergis VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:59 Jan 24, 2008 Jkt 214001 Technologies Group Corporation. The company official also confirms that the worker group includes on-site leased workers from Aerotech. The Department has determined that the Aerotech workers were sufficiently under the control of Synergis Technologies Group Corporations. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers of Dielink International, Dievelopment, and workers from Aerotek working onsite at the Grand Rapids, Michigan locations of the subject firm. The intent of the Department’s certification is to include all workers employed at Synergis Technologies Group Corporation, Grand Rapids, Michigan who were adversely-impacted by a shift in production of metal stamping dies to China. The amended notice applicable to TA–W–62,043 is hereby issued as follows: ‘‘All workers of Synergis Technologies Group Corporation, Dietech International and Dievelopment, Grand Rapids, Michigan, including on-site leased workers from Forge Industrial Staffing, All Performance Staffing and Aerotek, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after August 24, 2006, through September 17, 2009, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.’’ Signed at Washington, DC, this 14th day of January 2008.

Ravenswood Specialty Services, Inc., Ravenswood, WV; Notice of 
Negative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated November 29, 2007, the United Steel, Paper and 
Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service 
Workers International Union (the Union) requested administrative 
reconsideration of the Department's negative determination regarding 
eligibility for workers and former workers of Ravenswood Specialty 
Services, Inc., Ravenswood, West Virginia (subject firm) to apply for 
Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) and Alternative Trade Adjustment 
Assistance (ATAA). The negative determination was issued on October 18, 
2007. The Department's Notice of determination was published in the 
Federal Register on October 31, 2007 (72 FR 61686). Workers produce 
nylon polymer and Minlon, and are not separately identifiable by 
related article.
    The petition was denied because the subject firm did not shift 
production to a foreign country, the subject firm did not import nylon 
polymer or Minlon, and the subject firm's major declining customer did 
not import nylon polymer or Minlon during the relevant period.
    In the request for reconsideration, the Union stated that ``the 
workers' separations are due to foreign imports and a shift of 
production to a foreign country. We are in the process of gathering 
further information to help support this position and will forward it 
to your office as soon as possible.''
    Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), administrative reconsideration may be 
granted under the following circumstances:
    (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered 
that the determination complained of was erroneous;
    (2) if it appears that the determination complained of was based on 
a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or
    (3) if in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of 
the decision.
    The Union did not supply facts not previously considered; nor 
provide additional documentation indicating that there was either (1) a 
mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or (2) 
a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration 
of the initial determination.
    After careful review of the request for reconsideration, the 
Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met.

Conclusion

    After review of the application and investigative findings, I 
conclude that

[[Page 4638]]

there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts 
which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor's prior 
decision. Accordingly, the application is denied.

    Signed at Washington, DC this 16th day of January 2008.
 Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
